Stamped. The Russians haven't fielded milled Kalashnikovs since 1959.

For future reference, the really easy way to tell a stamped from a milled is to just look at the receiver, right above the magwell. Is it a cute little dimple (or completely flat)? Then it's stamped. If it's a larger, rectangular impression, then it's milled.
